CELPIP Preparation Program

Take the CELPIP Preparation Program at CUE

The CELPIP Preparation Program has been developed by CELPIP experts to assist test takers to maximize their performance on test day. The program focuses on language skills and test-taking strategies that will help test takers demonstrate their true level of English language proficiency on the CELPIP General Test or the CELPIP General-LS Test.

Key features of this program include:

  • trained, certified, and skilled CELPIP instructors;
  • up to 72 hours of classroom instruction;
  • language skills and test-taking skills taught in the context of specific question types;
  • regular vocabulary-building practice;
  • plenty of exercises and activities designed to build key skills;
  • many opportunities to practice with other students and the instructor; and
  • a practice test administered at a CELPIP Test Centre.

Eligibility: Open to everyone (basic knowledge of English is required)
